Carbon Fiber Basement Wall Reinforcement
While cracking and bowing basement walls are common problems, they should not be overlooked.
These issues jeopardize your home’s structural stability and your family’s safety. They also significantly reduce your home’s market value.
However, there’s no need to panic. Indiana Foundation Service offers a reliable solution: Carbon Fiber wall reinforcement. As a trailblazer in basement repair, we bring you a proven, cost-effective way to fortify your basement walls long-term.
By reading this page, you’ll gain the information needed—from what carbon fiber straps fix to how we install them—to make an informed decision for your home.
What Is Carbon Fiber Basement Wall Reinforcement?
Carbon Fiber Basement Wall Reinforcement is a sophisticated solution that stabilizes and fortifies basement walls showing signs of damage like cracking and bowing.
Carbon fiber, whose strength is 10 times greater than steel post-installation, forms the core of this solution. Low-profile carbon fiber straps are applied to the walls, forming a secure bond, making them highly effective for walls with minor to moderate damage—such as those with less than two inches of inward movement.
Unlike conventional steel beams, Carbon Fiber straps are unobtrusive and space efficient.
